Hartford Municipal Building
This building replaced the Old State House as the seat of city government when it opened in 1915. The design is of the Beaux-Art style, constructed of brick and faced with white Bethel, Conn. granite, with a copper and tile roof. All of the entrances are bronze. The 3-story central atrium is 25' wide by 150' long, decorated with panels depicting scenes from Hartford's history.I took these photos when I lived in Hartford. I love this building and many others in Hartford. Hartford was the center of great architecture in the Golden Age, when Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe lived there.
I made a movie of these shots which can be seen HERE.
Thank you for stopping by! I can't wait to see the other posts!
